HEAS 2000 – Introduction to Health and Society
This course introduces students to the social foundations of health, which includes how the organization of society shapes health, how culture shapes how we think about and act towards health, and how communities have responded to health challenges. To equip students to engage in rigorous interdisciplinary scholarship in the Health and Society minor, a portion of the course is dedicated to exploring the unique analytical frameworks and methodologies employed across disciplines contributing to the minor (e.g., Economics, History, Psychology, and Sociology) to study health, illness, and the body. Required for all minors.
